Academic research in architecture has mainly become a theoretical activity drivenaway from its subject’s core, focusing in complementary fields. Analyticalinvestigations are common – concerning historical character, theoretical, constructiveor technological – as well as propositional thesis – mainly regarding construction andtechnology. Yet, you can find much investigation in this scientific area, which find itssignificance in other domains. However, project-based theses in architecture, in whichthere are no antagonism or exclusion between theory and practice but rather promotecomplementarity, are quite scarce. This paper aims to answer the question thatseems natural and consistent with the above scenario: how can we define a newparadigm, in which architecture would be understood and portrayed as a system forproducing and spreading knowledge?Keywords: Research, Knowledge, Architecture, Design, Archer, Portugal
